2021 Virtual Symposium
Where Critical Infrastructure is Threatened and How to Fix It

Thursday, June 17, 2021 | 10:00 AM - 12:30 PM PT
Web Conference, US & Canada

Nation states have increasingly targeted organizations managing critical infrastructure (utilities, for example) knowing that industrial control systems continue to run on antiquated technology. Security teams seek guidance to better determine their weaknesses and how to fix them. This virtual symposium will address that, including how to:

  • Use adversarial emulation in IT/OT environments to better understand how attackers think when targeting infrastructure.
  • Expand purple teaming to include development/operations to find/fix problems across a wider area.
  • Better understand the right tools to bolster defenses (products and categories to consider).
  • Better understand which tools they have that can be repurposed.
